Little Falls Council Tackles Budget and Renovations

In the latest Little Falls Town Council meeting, key developments regarding the town’s budget and infrastructure took center stage. Mayor James Damiano presented the 2024 budget, which notably includes a slight decrease in the total amount to be raised by taxes and an increased budget for the local library. The meeting also touched on community projects, such as the upcoming intersection work on Main Street and Stevens Avenue, the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) application for street improvements on Clarence Avenue, and the ongoing renovation of Wilmore Park.

The council’s discussion about the library’s budget increase became a focal point, sparking a conversation on the formula used for determining the budget allocation. The increase is part of the town’s investment in community services, as the library plans to extend its programs, which include the Garden Club, a delivery service, and an upcoming speaker series.

Infrastructure improvements were another major topic, with Mayor Damiano announcing the intersection work on Main Street and Stevens Avenue. This project is crucial as it involves a key thoroughfare in the town, potentially impacting traffic and pedestrian safety. Additionally, the council is seeking funds through a CDBG grant to improve Clarence Avenue, signaling efforts to upgrade infrastructure across the town steadily.

The renovation of Wilmore Park was also highlighted. The park’s upgrade is anticipated to provide residents with enhanced facilities, contributing to the town’s quality of life.
